    don't know if this has been posted yet, just found it on Max Keiser's site.
    A video of this years luna rabbit 10kg mega hummer being pressed!

    That's a lot of capital tied up into just 1 machine press (not to mention the handling hardware and dies) particularly with such a small number of coins produced. Just 500 rabbit coins will be produced from this machine.

    I wonder why they just didn't give the tech a pair of disposible gloves instead of the those finger condoms? They'd be hell to put on!

    P.S.
    They're the most stupidest invention I can think of...and yet there they are!

    I'd probably spring for a dragon version next year, but even there you're much better off with 160 2oz coins instead.

    The whole collection would cost over $120k. A millionaires collectible. Way too much capital in the set of 12.

    While the cost per unit is no doubt high for the mint, the prestige and media exposure they get from it probably adds significantly to their decision to make this coin.

    Absolutely beautiful coin though. As much an art piece as a bullion investment!

    Nice vid Claw . I use these goves at work, they are leather ( may as well start polishing them from the outset . Blue rimmed ones are XL I think and it may well be just an ohs thing that goes with the press.
